Re: No protection against reload cheating in PBEM++?

That connection really should be enough, yeah. I'd advise to keep retrying when uploading your turn to avoid automated warnings. There's no Undo in OOB for historic design reasons. Two button input system is definitely the best way to avoid misclicks. They'll still happen though, and the best thing ...

Re: regarding Victory conditions - (Moscow spoiler alert)

Try the original Raseiniai map from the content crate?

The objective for the Germans is randomised and the Russian player is never told exactly what those targets are!

Re: Foul -- turning myself in

I got this issue as well.

Workaround was to close the Purchase dialog, play as normal, then, when before end turn was to purchase one more Inf and say Yes to revive.

Could then end turn.

Re: Some bugs I'd like to see fixed

A second thought, can you try backing up then renaming your Hotseat saves folder?

Documents\My Games\Order of Battle - WW2\SaveGames\Hotseat

Then try running the game? That will also help rule out an avenue.

Thanks

Re: Some bugs I'd like to see fixed

Hmm, interesting, the UI for Hotseat is failing as it's missing a reference to something... Do you have many custom scenarios on your HDD? I don't suppose any of them have unusual (non Alphanumeric) characters in their titles? e.g. like accented chars? If you go to Online Multiplayer and try to Crea...

It's about how many turns get played at the end :-)

PC, Steam version. I've attached the Dxdiag report if this can help. If some event logs are required just point me where to find them :) Hi, Can you load the game, try to go to hotseat (getting the issue you mention), then quit the game. Then, on the Launcher that appears when you quit hit the "Get...

I have a gut feeling I know what's wrong, but I'll need to be at the office tomorrow to check. Do let me know if you're pc or Mac.

Also, please try to Verify your Steam files? Right Click OOB in Steam, select Properties.. In the popup window that appears, select the Local Files tab then select the Verify Integrity of Game Files... button. That'll check that the files in your folders match what should be there.

Re: Red Storm Release - Eastern Front Tournament

So my scenarios are listed and one is green. I cannot select either one. When I "mouse over" that scenario line, it states that the scenario is not installed on your device. I have several OOB DLC's, so any idea why I cannot select and launch the scenario ? Playing OOB through Steam, version 8.6.0 ...

Re: US Marines - Guadalcanal Help (I don't like defending)

I did a quick play-through of this scenario as a stand-alone on level 3 difficulty. Attached a replay here.

Loads of mistakes and way over-confident in the middle, but it shows my general strategy for this.

Re: US Marines - Guadalcanal Help (I don't like defending)

Best advice I can give for this one is to stay mobile and don't get too passive. I stay away from mines personally in favour of reserving my RP for repairs for combat units. Gabe's last screenshot shows my usual first move too, a decently strong force to go and put down the assault from the East and...
